#GDPR #webdev #cookies

In this episode we have Andrew Fair­lie from Mutu­al to dis­cuss the new Euro­pean Union Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion aka the GDPR. We dis­cuss what the GDPR means specif­i­cal­ly to web design­ers and devel­op­ers both in terms of the work we do, and the work pro­pos­als we draft.

We dis­cuss the GDPR from a gestalt per­spec­tive, to get an under­stand­ing of what the gen­er­al intent of the law is, and also dis­cuss what it means to peo­ple out­side of the EU, as well as to EU citizens.

Then we get down to brass tacks in terms of what this means for our con­tact forms, web­site notices, cook­ie storage/​notices, and oth­er changes we need to make to be com­pli­ant. Action­able things that we need to be think­ing about and doing now.
